How do I reduce the number of results to find exactly what I’m looking for?

Searches in WorldCat can give a very large number of results. Try the following methods to refine your search:

  • Phrase searching by placing your search terms between quotation marks
  • Run an advanced search on specific fields such as “Title” or “Author”
  • Refine search results using limits on the left-hand side e.g. by Format, Topic, Year, etc.
